Woo Hoo! We are now in full blown vegetable garden season. After the shop closed, I picked the first little batch of peas that were ready. There are so few we'll just shell them and eat 'em raw. Then I couldn't help myself. I just had to dig around the potatoes to see if we had any keepers --and voila!--we had some. Time to boil the water!
I'm usually the last one expected to give a helpful kitchen tip, but here's a good one I picked up. (It's on my mind as I also put some of the girl's eggs on to boil.)-- If you're making hard boiled eggs add plenty of salt to the water and the eggs will peel like a dream. Now I don't mean just a pinch of salt. Add like a tablespoon--go ahead, salt's cheap. I don't know why it works, but it does.
